Happy Valentines Day!

Happy Valentines Day!

Grab yourself a cookie on the way past - they're fresh made today (Cherry and Almond Shortbread)....I've already had 4, they're so moreish!!

Here's a little piece of scrappy patchwork I made a few weeks ago - its literally pieces out of my scrap basket - some of them were really tiny!

It's not a great photo - the weather's been a bit grey around here lately. I love it though, I chose all my favourite scraps - the hearts are 'Hearts o Plenty' by Michael Miller and the white dots on pink are Riley Blake.  There are also some fuscia pink pieces, some lovely bright stripey ones and the thinnest scrap of gingham (they look much brighter and prettier really, this photo just doesn't show it!).

I ended up using this pretty piece of patchwork to make this -

Isn't this little fabric tray so sweet?  It only measures about 4" x 3", but its just the perfect size for this -

....storing all those bits of thread that you just pile up next to your sewing machine!

I added the ribbon and button detail just to hide the messy folded corners.  (And because I LOVE ribbons and buttons so I look for any excuse to use them!)


  1. your little tray is so clever and sweet!
    a great way to use some much love fabric (and scrap!)
